10:02 pm
and distress but still hong kong's people don't feel lam went far enough. there are i'm here to condemn the police while it's against us it's unacceptable of the police to find our demonstration last wednesday as a riot. lamb even justifies the police violence as righteous measures that's why i'm here to urge her to step down the idea or they came out today to urge the government to release people arrested in mass clashes last wednesday actions speak louder than words we want concrete action from her but not a statement thanking the fans and so i out they just jogging on a public anger still seats following violent clashes on wednesday when police used tear gas rubber bullets and bean bag rounds to disperse tens of thousands of protesters that's why you don't hear from the peace must apologize for using excessive force and the situation is still unacceptable and the stability withdrew

and what she does is just muddle through half heartedly now it appears that nothing short of carry lem's resignation will make the people back down. to join me now in studio banhart botches a senior chinese expert at the bettles money institute here in berlin i mean just looking at those pictures soup 1000000 people they estimate marched on sunday in hong kong can you put that number in perspective mean is that unprecedented essentially for these kind of protests as tokyo president 2000000 people in hong kong is more than a quarter of the population that's what the a population of hong kong i mean about $7000000.00 fully equipped and i would be $20000000.00 in germany or $90000000.00 in the u.s. or $300000000.00 in the people's republic of china for that matter so it's huge. they once carry land to reside that was why they were out there what are the chances of that happening. i think politically kerry is pretty much done
10:04 pm
for the interesting thing is it will be hard for beijing to replace you can't really imagine kerry lamb going around opening in the gods of giving university commencement speeches after this huge you can see her traveling abroad she was due to come to germany in a couple of days and canceled that trip of course the tricky thing though is. if they choose a new leader for hong kong the whole issue of how does the leader is chosen north by the people aging is going to come up again and that is what triggered the umbrella revolution in 2014 and they don't want this topic to cook up again so kerry may have to sit it out for. this bill it was controversial it's now been postponed indefinitely they say but you know those protesters are not celebrating about that right i mean they say the basic afraid
10:05 pm
that this could just come back at a later date they might bring this bill back what are the chances of that. i think that is going to happen the bigger story is that china wants to get control of hong kong the communist party is not very fond of the special rights at all that's an off the every protest in the pots they jane has come back with more repressions with pressuring protesters they've always tighten their fists and the question is how long can they keep tightening their fists before they break their own thing. speaking of beijing i mean they've been very quiet about this we haven't really heard much from china what's the view there i mean how do you think chinese leaders view these protests publicly they don't talk about it they sense it on the mainland but internally they must be fuming because basically the hong kong government carry at one job and that was to prevent the protests in the keep it political and what
10:06 pm
happened the protests the political the use as you. briefly i mean want to is this signal now for hong kong's autonomy from mainland china how much is that a risk i think the hong kong people have or time for themselves because there's a lot of things going on in china at the moment it looks like a very stable system but it's really cooking inside but the long term goal of the beijing government is definitely to bring hong kong under control and urge the systems to 1000000 people out in the streets of hong kong bartsch with perspective on that from the battles in institute here in berlin thank you very much thank you . now let's take a look at some of the stories making news around the world sudan's former president omar al bashir has been charged with corruption related offenses after appearing in public for the 1st time since he was overthrown in april it was taken to the public prosecutor's office in the capital khartoum or has been held under arrest military

a bit more about them let's take a look at how they fared against chile. alex morgan scored 5 goals against thailand but was rested on the bench against chile so she's the strength in depth for the u.s. side. carly lloyd was restored to the starting line up and it took 11 minutes for her to score a record 6 go in a 6 straight world cup game chile fought they'd equalize midway through the 1st half college guerrero was deemed to be offside and interfering in play despite not touching the ball. almost immediately the ruthless u.s. team increased their lead thanks to a superb header from juliet's arguably the best headed goal of the tournament so far. lloyd then made it 3 nil 10 minutes before the hof time break was. a late penalty robbed her of the chance for a glorious hat trick but the u.s.
